gigabye m912 with gOS CloudYou know that browser-centric operating system that Good OS introduced yesterday? While it’s not available for consumers yet, Good OS did show off gOS Cloud at the Netbook World Summit in Paris, and Sascha from Eee PC News was there to speak with Good OS CEO David Liu. You can read Sascha’s thoughts at his blog (English translation), or you can check out the slideshow from Liu’s presentation after the break.

In a nutshell, gOS Cloud is designed around a web browser which looks an awful lot like Google Chrome. When you load the operating system, you’re presented with a browser and a program dock that will launch desktop or web-based applications. And the company is working with Gigabyte to preload the operating system on a Gigabyte touchscreen netbook which will be available during the first quarter of 2009.

The Gigabyte netbook will dual boot gOS Cloud and Windows XP. No word on how much the computer will cost, or whether Gigabyte plans to make it available in the US. The company’s current line of M912 netbooks are not available in North America.
